Strawberry cosy

Strawberry tea cosy was another of my firsts – I was exploring variations for red and cream 8ply wool. It’s based on a free Internet pattern by Katya Frankel available for download through Ravelry

My eldest daughter took this cosy home and it now clothes a 6 cup white teapot she bought online.

I like Strawberry because it’s an easy stocking stitch knit with the only tricky bit being the green stalk at the top which is knitted in the round. Nice and fast for a quick gift!

I made another Strawberry tea cosy for my daughter’s work friend  for her birthday.  I used yellow wool for the pips this time but I think it looks equally good knitted with cream pips! Because it’s unlined you have to be careful that the shape of your teapot works. It looks good on a 6 cup Maxwell infuser pot.
